busy, busy, busy...

I have been very productive today. Not only did I make 2 altered items and a card, I also got some baking done. Amish Friendship bread... Mmmm...

Today's project is in honor of the stressful holiday season: Christmas Tranquilizers.

How fun is this? I saw a post on SCS about using M&M's for pills as a gag gift, and knew I would have to make one for my Secret Santa since she loves M&M's! Please excuse the whited out areas on the label where I removed personal info for safety. They contained the "pharmacy's" address, and the name and address of the "prescription holder".

Tip: make sure to wash the bottle out really well to avoid any transfer of the previous contents onto your M&M's. Although, that could be interesting if the previous contents happened to be those little blue pills... LOL! Talk about stress relief!

This project took longer than expected to whip up, mainly due to the time it took to make a template for the label that would fit my bottle. If someone can tell me how to attach a document file to my blog, I'd be happy to share my Publisher template for these and save you the effort if you want to make one for yourself.

Check back later, and I'll have another altered item for you.
